Only a few hours left to enter the giveaway and busy-ness!

 The QAL giveaway of Suzy's Zoo fat quarters ends tonight at midnight, so you need to enter today! Go HERE and enter through the Rafflecopter link.

Update: Jenelle won the Suzy's Zoo fat quarter pack! Congrats Jenelle!

You might remember this Circle and Spin to the Moon that I was working on a few weeks ago. I debated whether I wanted borders or not. I decided on one narrow border, so picked up this black mottled batik when I was at Cut Up and Quilt last week. I cut border strips and added them yesterday, plus prepped the quilt for loading on the quilt frame. I will have to take a picture when it's finished, as I forgot to take one yesterday with the border.
I am using this dark, but colorful fabric for the backing, so pieced it yesterday too. It's ready to be loaded when I get my daughter's duvet/quilt finished. I quilted a few more rows on it yesterdaybut haven't made it up there today. I'm about half way through.  
As much fun as it is to finish a project, it's just as much fun starting one! I have been itching to start a Happy Village(s) using the book of that name by Karen Eckmeier. I chose some fabrics with care....
 and cut them as instructed. Little piles of jiggedy jaggedy cuteness.
 Then it was time to play!
 I spent several hours playing with the pieces to get to the first stage...
 I put a few rooftops on, but then got tired so stopped for the night. You can see that it's starting to look like a village.
I spent  this morning getting the post and pattern ready for the next Red, White and True QAL post on Monday...I had written the pattern for the PDF, but added a coloring page for each size today, plus several different versions of the pattern. Hopefully that will help inspire and get the creative juices flowing for another quilt using that pattern. It really is addictive, isn't it?

After lunch, I went outside and did some weed spraying and went for a bike ride. I've been trying to get my "bike legs" back since I haven't ridden much in the past year, so only rode for 20 minutes.  It's hot out so I have been sitting here cooling off for an hour or so....might be done for the day!

1. The apostle Paul was not saved like the thief on the cross.
2. The apostle Paul was not saved by saying the sinner's prayer.
3. The apostle Paul was not saved by grace alone.
4. The apostle Paul was not saved by faith only.
5. The apostle Paul was not saved by baptism alone.
6. The apostle Paul was not saved by confession alone.
7. The apostle Paul was not saved by repentance alone.
8. The apostle Paul was not saved on the road to Damascus.


The apostle Paul was saved like the three thousand that were saved on the Day of Pentecost. He was saved just like every person saved under the new covenant.

What did Peter preach on the Day of Pentecost?

1. John 3:16 Saved by faith.The apostle Peter preached Jesus as Lord and Savior.(Acts 2:36)
2. Romans 10:9 Believe the resurrection of Jesus. Peter preached the resurrection.(Acts 2:25-35)
3. Acts 3:19 Saved by repentance. The apostle Peter preached repentance. (Acts 2:38)
4. Mark 16:16 Saved by water immersion. Peter preached forgiveness through water baptism. (Acts 2:38)(Acts 2:40-41)

1. Saul (Paul) Believed and repented on the road to Damascus. (Acts 9:3-6)

2. Saul (Paul) Prayed three days while on the road to Damascus, however, neither faith alone, nor saying a sinner's prayer was sufficient for him to have his sins forgiven. (Acts 9:9-11)

3. Saul (Paul) had his sins forgiven after three days on the road to Damascus. Acts 22:10-16......16 'And now why are you waiting? Arise and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord.(NKJV)

Faith only advocates say that Saul's sins were forgiven because he called on the name of the Lord, not because of water baptism. That contradicts their own "faith only" belief that you are saved the minute you believe. Saul believed and repented three days prior on the road to Damascus.

The apostle Paul was saved just like every other person that was saved or will be saved under the new covenant. 1. Faith, John 3:16 2. Confession, Romans 10:9 3. Repentance, Acts 3:19 4. Immersion in water, Acts 2:38, Mark 16:16

NOTE: The thief on the cross was saved before the New Testament was in force. He was not saved on or after the Day of Pentecost. The new covenant was only in force after the resurrection and Ascension of Jesus.

I gave up my bike several years ago. I can't seem to find one that I don't have to 'bend over' and ride. My hands and wrists just can't take the pressure (I have tendonitis in my right wrist).

I love how your village is coming together. That's going to be so cool.
